The 2008 New Jersey HorseXpo was held May 17 and 18 at South County Park in Flemington, New Jersey. This two-day event showcased vendors of equine facility and horse care products as well as organizations that promote equine causes.
Mylestone's booth attracted many visitors with its beautiful display of our rescued horses plus an array of Mylestone merchandise.
Riding exhibitions and demonstrations such as equine massage therapy ran throughout the day, bringing horse lovers and professionals together in celebration of their favorite animal. Thanks to a generous sponsorship from our own volunteer Sue DeHartís employer, USA Architects of Somerville, NJ, Mylestone was present with an information and fundraising booth that successfully raised donations and spread the word about Mylestone to many new friends.
Available to purchase in Mylestone's merchandise are snuggly ponies which look just like some of Mylestone's residents. If you look carefully, you'll see Apache, Madeline, Tommy Two-Tone and Blaze, among others!
Mylestone merchandise sold well and people stopped by to admire the beautiful photographs of our residents that were on display. A special thank you to Sue for coordinating the booth sponsorship with USA Architects (usaarchitects.com) and to Diane Becker, Lois Commander, Melanie Langen-Stillo, Barbara Peterscak, Barrie Saltzman, (pictured at right), Jennifer Sinkbeil, Jill Stanwood, Kathy Stanwood and Krista Strobel, (pictured at left), for manning the booth!
